Granny-A-Day OCTOBER!!!!

Granny-A-Day crochetalongs for April, May, June, July, August & September have been quite successful!

Who wants to granny in OCTOBER? So if you missed the APRIL or MAY or JUNE  or JULY or AUGUST or SEPTEMBER ones or you have a big project to continue join us in OCTOBER! We will begin OCTOBER 1st!

This is basically a motivation crochetalong. If you want to work on a granny square, motif, one huge granny square blanket, this is a great way to set aside time everyday to get some serious work completed in an attainable amount of time.

People have come up with some really neat uses for grannys too! Different bags and blankets, shopping sack holder, slippers, scarves, a nifty pullover etc. I have made 7" grannys and after a month I have 30 squares that make a perfect size throw blanket. I think everyone is getting a granny square throw for Christmas this year.

If you are intrested and would like to join we would love to see your work! Post pics of progress and then the finished product! It would be great if everyone could post progress weekly (but not required). At the end of the month we can piece together our work and show off our afghans and Inga bags and whatever else you can come up with to make with nifty grannies! (Must post a completed project in this thread.)

I'm going to need more yarn LOL  Acutally I have 2 pounds of love..... Hopefully I don't side track myself!

I would love to be in on this one.  I have wanted to do a daisy square afghan for a long long time.   This gives me some time to figure it out and decide on my colors.  Smiley

I will be crocheting along for this one as well most likely. Depends on how big Mario turns out. If he's as huge as he's looking to be now, I may scrap doing Princess Peach. I'll know more by the end of next week hopefully.

I would love to join because I have this insane idea for making an mini square throw for a doll house bed.

I've started some - somewhere - and this would be the motivation to get that project, to be honest, probably finished.

Count me in!

I'll do it. I have a few skeins of some baby yarn that I never did anything with. I can make a big baby blanket to give away to someone. I'm glad I saw this!

I finished the granny blanket i started in the Sept crochet along, but I cannot figure out how to get the picture off my phone!!! I have plans to start a larger blanket for my best friend for Christmas.  Count me in on this one! Hopefully I remember to take a picture of the finished blanket before giving it away!
